Steps to Enrollment

The steps to becoming a Bethlehem student are designed to make an incoming freshman or transfer student feel a part of the Bethlehem Family from the very beginning of the enrollment process. Whether it's a tour of school, our Open House, or the High School Placement Test, Bethlehem invites everyone to come see what we are about and what we have to offer.

Visiting Bethlehem

Due to restrictions surrounding COVID-19, the Archdiocese of Louisville has asked us to put a hold on shadow days until further notice. However, in place of shadow days, we are offering individualized tours of school Monday-Friday, that can be scheduled from 1:15PM-4:15PM. These tours typically take about an hour, and are good way to get familiar with Bethlehem and what we have to offer. For more information or to schedule a tour, please call or email our Director of Admissions, Paige Montgomery, at 502-348-8594 or

The High School Placement Test

The Placement Test is a standardized test given to all students who are interested in attending a Catholic High School.  It is administered each year on a Saturday in December and in January. This test helps us determine the most appropriate course work and academic path for meeting the needs of individual students. The placement test is only one of several tools used for academic placement. For the Class of 2025, the High School Placement Test will be held on Saturday, December 12th at Bethlehem. The make-up test day will be held on January 9th.
Transfer Students
Transfer students and parents should meet with a member of the administrative team to ensure the best transition experience into the Bethlehem community. A completed application and copies of the student's birth certificate and social security card are required in order to register.

Student records will need to be made available to Bethlehem during the transfer process. Questions about transferring a student can be directed to Paige Montgomery at 502-348-8594, ext. 217.
